Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Glenn,



We forgot to write in your guest book about our experience, this letter is our expressions of thanks.



We came to celebrate our friend's 50th wedding anniversary. When we walked in the door we knew right away this was the right choice.



Your home offers a friendly atmosphere, great location, comfortable beds and a gorgeous deck to take in all of the beautiful surroundings.



Glenn, you are a wonderful host. Your caring manner was obvious from the time we first spoke to the time that we were driving home, when you called about a camera being left behind. Joyfully, we discovered the camera was yours.



The weather you ordered could not have been better!!



Thanks for everything!! We will be back.

Beautiful, Serene, Clean. Everything you could want or need!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and are considering returning. Glen was easy to work with and very responsive. Home exceeded expectations. Kitchen supplied with everything you could possibly need and more. Quality cookware. Tons of linens, pillows, throws, towels, etc. Spacious, Clean, nicely decorated, very welcoming. Enjoyed time on the spacious deck grilling, hot tubbing, fire pit, gazing at the star filled skies at night, kite flying and fishing on the beach. Missed out on using the awesome kayaks supplied as the winds were very high the day we planned that activity. Ventured to Rehoboth - great boardwalk, shops, scenery. Dined at Abbotts Grill - amazing, fresh, quality and grass fed steaks. We liked Crooked Hammock Brewery, and found gem in Milford for fresh cut meats called. The Mule Run Meat Farm - highly recommend for fresh quality steaks, pork, bison, etc. I don't recommend the Food Lion Gocery Store.

Fun - laughter - memories

  • 5 of 5

Glenn's Slaughter Beach bay front cottage is our favorite vacation spot. We are always so excited to get there and ever so sad to leave. We have been renting this fabulous home away from home twice a year for the past 3 years. We have always found new adventures and eateries near by. Glenn's cottage is welcoming and he has everything you could ever want or need to make your stay worry free.

Relaxation - Aug 2017

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful time we had at your place -- again. It was so nice to sit on the large deck in the mornings and listen to the birds chirping and the water lap onto the beach while sipping on some coffee. We so much enjoy bringing the entire family -- including our two dogs. Our crew included my husband and I, daughter and son-in-law (22 and 26), daughter (20), son (15) and my mom (70). Pulling out of the driveway on our last day, each requested when we were returning. We absolutely love the fact this home is fully stocked -- not only with appliances/dishes, but having paper and cleaning products, full linen services and beach items. We spent many hours on the deck (be sure to have bug spray) and on the beach. Enjoyed visiting the outlets and took the ferry to Cape May. Did some fishing and we spent quality time playing games and doing puzzles -- which speaks to how peaceful and relaxing this place is. Thanks again Glenn for opening your home. We are so grateful. Will be visiting again soon!!

Quiet and relaxing

We had a wonderful week at Slaughter Beach. The house was beautiful and we had more than everything we needed. The view from the deck and the hot tub were an added bonus. Thank you Glenn!!
